How did you learn about Cigar Box Nation?
I've been looking at cigar box videos for a couple of years before I began building. It became quickly apparent the Cigar Box Nation is the center of the CBG Universe.

Thanks Rob, likewise you build some very high end 4-stringers!

I hope you meant to say nice looking. : ) 

If so, thanks Rob! I dig your stuff too, your Risa uke is particularly awesome.

 Thanks-but compared to most of the builders here I consider myself a rank amateur.

 Even so,  i'm having fun scaring the neighbors with my latest build, my "Ukuklele for Dummies" book for reference and my horribly unskilled fingerings...  :)

Thanks, Rob.  I have built 10 guitars and 17 ukes.  Mostly doing ukes these days.  Easier to build, play and sell.  I am starting to use Chinese necks and fretboards because they are so damn cheap and the quality seems ok.

You are welcome, Rob, thx for accepting.

I used to post there a lot too, and Ukulele Cosmos but not many of the folks from before seem to be around those sites. Also used to frequent the 4th Peg way back when.

I run hot and cold on building due to the day job and honey-do list...
